Hanyang Liu 劉瀚陽

"Keep staying out of the comfort zone."

I received my M. Eng. degree and B. Eng. degree from the Northwestern Polytechnical University, in 2017 and 2014. During my graduate program, I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Junwei Han and Prof. Feiping Nie.

I worked in Huawei from December 2017 to July 2018. Before that, I served as a research assistant at ShanghaiTech University, working closely with Prof. Kewei Tu.

My CV is here [pdf].

Research Interest

My research interests include machine learning and its applications in computer vision and natural language processing. In particular, I'm interested in semi-supervised learning, constrained clustering, and syntactic analysis.
